  • (Tennessee Governor) Bredesen calls biofuel criticism 'outrageous', 6 November 2009 by KnoxNews.com: Tennessee "Gov. Phil Bredesen branded a legislative attack on the BioFuels Initiative he launched two years ago as 'ridiculous' and 'outrageous' Thursday and said it endangers an unannounced 'very large investment in East Tennessee.'"
    • A Fiscal Review Committee report "noted that the project has changed substantially from what was projected in 2007, when legislators approved $70 million in state spending on the initiative."
    • "A central point was that legislators were told two years ago that the pilot project would produce 5 million gallons of ethanol per year from switchgrass - an amount now reduced to 250,000 gallons with initial production involving corn cobs."[3]
  • Journal of Industrial Ecology publishes set of articles on GHG-intensity of corn-ethanol, 6 November 2009 by Journal of Industrial Ecology: A set of recent articles, editorials and letters that comprise a lively debate about the greenhouse gas emissions attributable to corn ethanol have shown the GHG intensity of corn ethanol to be between 56 and 60 gCO2e per MJ – or about 60% that of California reformulated gasoline blendstock. This debate has shown that reasoned discussion can move us toward a consensus about models and parameter estimates, but also how prevalent simple mistakes in modeling are and how arduous the process of rooting them out can be.
